2340 Big Band Rock The Classics - The Soul Session
07 Sep 2024 - Capitol Theatre
Presented by 88.9FM & 96.3FM
Soul music is the heartbeat of the world, it connects us all
The 2340 Big Band presents a celebration of the songs of soul music. With its origins in African-American gospel music, the soul genre has evolved to become one of the most influential factors in pop music over the past 60 years.
Expect to hear some hits from the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, along with songs made popular by Stevie Wonder, Roachford and more recently, Alicia Keys.
Listen out for the searing vocal intensity, call-and-response lyrics and extravagant use of melisma, along with a strong horn line and a driving rhythm section which characterise soul music.
'Soul music is timeless' – Alicia Keys
With a 17-piece band and vocals led by Kate Armstrong, Brad Gill, Sally-Anne Whitten, Rae Moody and a host of other talented local artists, come along and be entertained by an evening of music that is sure to appeal to your inner soul.
